Covid-19: Sentry MK4, Mass Fever Screening

This mass fever screening system is also deployed around Asia and Africa, some funded by notable organisations for example the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) and World Health Organisation (WHO). This system is recognised internationally in terms of capability, ease of operation and accuracy in detecting individuals with a high temperature.


The Sentry MK4 Mass Fever Screening System was designed and built by OmniSense Systems in response to the 2003 SARS epidemic. Since that time the system has been developed through four generations, and global reviews position it as in the lead in fever screening technology.


A fever is the body’s immune system fighting a virus such as COVID-19. Easily set up at a building entry point, the Sentry MK4 scans the people entering and projects a heat map to the accompanying monitor. The temperature of individuals is shown up in a scale of colours.

The Sentry MK4 system is now available in New Zealand through Fever Screen Technologies.
